NSL matches to get increased live coverage in 2018

The development is good news coming in the wake of withdrawal of sponsorship by premier betting firm SportsPesa

Over 100 FKF National Super League matches will be beamed live by free to air Sports channel Bamba television station this season.

According to the FKF Leagues and Competitions Manager Frank Ogolla, this is an improvement from the previous 52 matches aired live by the station last season.

In a circular to the clubs obtained by Goal, Ogolla revealed that the venues for the live matches will be subject to approval from the broadcasting partners in Nairobi.

The venues will be in Nairobi, Thika, Nakuru and by extension Naivasha.

Last year Bamba sports signed a three year exclusive TV media rights agreement with Football Kenya Federation to air the second tier FKF National Super League.

The development is good news coming in the wake of withdrawal of sponsorship by premier betting firm SportsPesa and Ogolla believes that increased coverage of NSL matches by Bamba Sports will enhance exposure of local talent.
